Welcome to the Barony of Delftwood!
The Barony of Delftwood is a part of the Society for Creative Anachronism (SCA), an international Medieval recreation society. Members of the SCA gather to hold Feasts, Tournaments, Courts and other events from the Middle Ages. The Barony of Delftwood is located in Syracuse, NY. Within the SCA, Delftwood is a part of the Kingdom of Æthelmearc (Western NY, Western PA, WV), and proud home of the First Queen and King of the new Kingdom, Caryl and Yngvar.
Happy Birthday Society! We are now entering A.S. XLVIII – or 48 so you don’t have to do Roman numeral math. Spring has finally arrived and so has Crown Tournament. We congratulate Prince Timothy and Princess Gabrielle as the heirs to the Sylvan Thrones!
As we move into spring, we know that War is on the horizon. Æthelmearc War Practice runs from May 16 to 19 at Cooper’s Lake. We encourage our fighters and fencers to attend and get some practice in melees with the rest of the army of our glorious kingdom. Please come and cheer Lord Fridrich Flußmüllner on as he fights his companion Baronial Champions in the Seven Pearls Tournament. In addition, the Seven Pearls Arts and Sciences competition will show the fine work of our arts and sci-ences champion, Lord Corwin Alexander Templeton. War Practice also offers great rapier, archery, and thrown weapons opportunities. There are also classes and merchants for those who are less martially inclined.
We also want to remind everyone that online pre-registration for Pennsic ends. Online prepaid registration will be available until Sunday, June 9th 2013 11pm EDT. If you are registering to camp with the Barony of Delftwood, be sure to select it from the drop-down menu. We thank Aurelio di Baldasare for stepping up as land agent. We are confident that he will do a marvelous job, along with his mentors, Baron Artemius Andreas Magnus and Baroness Clarice Roan.
Finally, we encourage everyone to pre-register for Tournament of the Windmill II: For the Glory of Rome. We have access to dormitory space this year, which is very exciting! And show off your azure -themed textile art in our A&S Challenge!
